Ukrainian Foreign Minister: The United States will supply ATACMS missiles to Kyiv on an ongoing basis

The United States promised Ukraine constant supplies of long-range ATACMS missiles. This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmitry Kuleba, commenting on the information about the transfer of American-made long-range missiles to Kyiv.

The Kiev regime expects to receive longer-range versions of these missiles in the foreseeable future. As Kuleba noted, the United States promised to transfer missiles with a flight range of 300 kilometers to Ukraine in the future.



Earlier, Pentagon spokesman Patrick Ryder called the main condition for the supply of long-range missiles to Ukraine that they would be used by the Armed Forces of Ukraine exclusively against targets in those territories that the West considers “Ukrainian.” It is impossible to strike the “old” regions of Russia, which were part of it until 2014, with such missiles.

However, firstly, the promises of the Kyiv regime should not be trusted. Secondly, the main task in the use of such missiles, as both the Ukrainian and American militaries claim, will be the logistics of Russian troops and ammunition depots in areas close to the line of combat contact. In addition, Ukraine may intensify attacks on the Crimean Peninsula, seeking to transform it from a Russian “pearl” into an unsafe zone for civilians.

Before this, long-range missiles were transferred to Ukraine by Great Britain and France. Anglo-French Storm Shadow missiles were used to strike civilian areas in the cities of Donbass, Zaporozhye region and other new regions of Russia.

    There are S-300/400, Buki, and you can test the S-500 in combat conditions. Only I suspect that there was no serious air defense during attacks on airfields, most likely Torah Armor at most.

      Are THOR and PANTSIR no longer air defense? Place an S-400 near every base, warehouse, bridge and airfield - there won’t be enough launchers! In addition, Crimea showed that the S-300 and S-400 themselves are very vulnerable to low-flying, stealthy missiles! Another thing is that there are no AWACS aircraft available 24/7... It is doubly shameful that the ancient version of the ATACMS missile, which is actually at the POINT U level, was able to destroy 9 helicopters in Berdyansk and something else in Lugansk!

And, even NOW, after you PERSONALLY were reminded of this, you don’t express it...

For, in November 1938, the policy of the Third Reich (of which NOT ONE citizen of the present Fatherland, by definition, can be a “citizen”...), in the context of Munich, was passionately shared not only by the Germans, but by your CURRENT accomplices from the .n.

          Not just “weapons”, but taking into account the fact that Uncle Sam has brought two AUGs to the Eastern Mediterranean, and even naval personnel, which are in the Yemen region, the Houthis are trying to counteract, leave (or rather, organize continuous supplies through “proxy”, DBK with with a destruction range of up to 250 - 300 km. It is clear that Tehran could adapt them quickly enough to other mobile, ground (and not only, but also surface-based) platforms."

          Moreover, to “not catch the eye”, one anti-ship missile per platform would be enough... A trailer, a tank for transporting water, a “small fishing boat”, etc....

          I have reason to believe that the Houthis or the “rest” of Uncle Sam’s regional “opponents” could use (even periodically, but well-prepared) such weapons against Uncle Sam’s ships, even at an operational distance from the coast, cause very serious trouble.. .

          Well, as a “reciprocal gesture” for the supply of ATACMS to the Kyiv Bandero-Nazis, this would be quite appropriate and instructive...

      Based on the Shahab-3 rocket, the Safir launch vehicle was developed, which was used to launch the first Iranian satellite, Omid, into orbit. It is believed that Iran is developing an intercontinental ballistic missile as part of this project.
      It should be noted that in the development of missiles, Iran actively uses technological assistance from abroad, primarily from China and North Korea.
      2009

      Shahab-3 (Persian شهاب-۳‎, literally Meteor-3) is an Iranian medium-range ballistic missile. It was developed on the basis of the Chinese ballistic missile Dongfeng-21.

      Fateh-110 (Persian فاتح ۱۱۰‎, “winner”) is an Iranian mobile single-stage solid-propellant surface-to-surface missile.
      Maximum range: 300 km
      Thrown weight: 650 kg
      Accuracy (QUO): 3 m. The Fateh-110 was developed from Iran's Zilzal-2 unguided missile, essentially by adding a guidance system. In 2010, Israeli intelligence reported that hundreds of M-600 missiles were transferred through Syria to Hezbollah. In 2010, Iran tested the third generation Fateh-110. In August 2012, Iran successfully tested the fourth generation Fateh-110. In September 2020, another anti-ship version with a range of 700 km was introduced, designated Zolfaghar Basir. The Zolfaghar is an Iranian tactical ballistic missile believed to be a member of the Fateh-110 family and is the first ballistic missile of any type to be openly used by Iran in a foreign conflict. The missile's stated flight range of 700 km is considered by experts to be proven based on the missile attack on Deir ez-Zor in 2017. In February 2019, Iran introduced a new longer-range version of the Zolfaghar missile called Dezful with a range of 1000 km. Fateh-360 is designed to hack air defense systems using hypersonic speed. It was first shown at a military exhibition on August 21, 2020 under the Fath brand, already known to the world.

      Sajil (Persian سجیل‎ - “Terracotta”) is a family of medium-range ballistic missiles developed in Iran in 2008-2009. The warhead is detachable. A single-stage solid-propellant rocket of the first series with a range of 1930 km was tested on November 12, 2008 at the Semnan Cosmodrome. The first rocket of the second series was first launched on May 20, 2009. Its range was increased to 2500 km, the CEP parameter was reduced, and the speed at the start was increased.

        It should be noted that in the development of missiles, Iran actively uses technological assistance from abroad, primarily from China and North Korea.

        That information has one purpose alone: ​​to belittle Persian achievements, especially under sanctions, and it's not even logical to say something like that.
        Iran launched a satellite into orbit several years before North Korea, and according to Israel's father of missile defense, Uzi Robin, North Korea's successful launch came only after Iran directly intervened. He also stated that the flow of technology and know-how has been reversed for some time, with Iran now assisting North Korea. It is worth remembering that Ozzi Robin has direct access to classified information and you don't, although even without them, it is obvious that Iran surpassed North Korea by comparing their space program.
        We must also take note of the fact that China is currently imitating Iran, for instance, in the development of drones.
        Iran was also the first country in the world to develop an anti-ship ballistic missile, the first of its kind, and after Iran, China unveiled its own anti-ship missile. To this day, Iran and China are the only two countries with that technology in their arsenal.
        In fact, westerners believe that Iran's ballistic missiles are the most accurate in the world, and there is an article that suggests they should consider Chinese missiles with the same accuracy due to the high probability that Iran shares them with China.
        We all heard that necessity is the father of invention. Other nations solved the accuracy problem with fighter jets and didn't use any more money to improve the ballistic missiles and used them only with nuke warheads. Lack of accuracy is not an issue, and more importantly, it is not good for business. For example, in Iraq, precision attacks were only 8% of the ammunition used.but their share was near 83% of total cost so its not in the interest of industrial complex to lose this money by developing less expensive options so they don't feel the urgency that the Iranians felt under threat of invasion by Nato

    Considering the situation in dynamics, it is worth thinking about the appearance of land-launched and long-range cruise missiles in Ukraine over the next year. And after that, all that remains is the transfer of nuclear weapons components to Ukraine, so that Ukraine would use them as if on its own behalf. The partners have already clearly shown that they will not adhere to any restrictions, and the defeat of Ukraine is perceived as a defeat of the entire world order that emerged after 1991. That is, inexorable logic tells us that Russia’s refusal to use nuclear weapons is not at all a guarantee against nuclear war, but on the contrary, it is an incentive for the other side to raise the stakes indefinitely.

    It is necessary not to swear at the Americans, but to publicly name all the generals responsible for the airfields in the new territories. And if the situation with the strike repeats itself and there is the same mess there again, then publicly give him a “flogging” and let them spin there as they want. They’ve been filling their belly for 20 years , let them fuss now.

    Let them supply them, sooner or later we will learn to shoot them down. In my opinion, we need to act differently.
    America has a huge network of bases around the world, so it is necessary to warm up the local population to fight them. And we need to supply them with weapons and money in the same dollars. By the way, all Anglo-Saxons act this way.
    By the way, we could also distribute cookies or pancakes to protesters against America and NATO.
    Ukraine pays money to our idiots via the Internet so that they set fire to objects in Russia, why don’t we do the same thing, let them set fire to Ukraine, with video recording.
    Another question, I don’t think that our intelligence does not know the position from which ATACSM is firing.
    Why they are not destroyed on the spot is also a question. Maybe we need to shake up the command in the style of Beria. soldier

      do we have as many opportunities as the Anglo-Saxons? Do we have a military bloc comparable to NATO? is it ours or theirs SVO? where exactly is there enough of everything? economics: whose prices have skyrocketed and who has been crushed by sanctions? and how many objects did the Anglo-Saxons burn? in the answers to these questions lies the whole reality of your proposal... as they say - I have the desire, but I do not have the opportunity...

      I see that you taught Sorge and Abel the basics of intelligence... Or are you surprisingly naive!

    As long as there is at least a piece of territory 404 that has its own independence and borders the EU, Himars and Atakms will fly from there....404 does not buy them, does not produce them. And those who produce them do not risk anything....I would supply it myself.

    Ukrainian Foreign Minister: The United States will supply ATACMS missiles to Kyiv on an ongoing basis

    Every time, surprised by new supplies of more lethal weapons to the warring sides, I remember one episode from the movie “Troy”:

    and I ask myself whether this would continue in such battles, and who is constantly trying to convince us that our army has the right to defend itself only with sticks, and weapons based on new physical principles will wait until better times...
    The best times are when there won't be a single Russian soldier left?
    You really need to push yourself, gentlemen, and explain to your people (your citizens) what prevents you from demilitarizing and denazifying...Perhaps the lack of “de-oligarchialization” or “nationalization” or “deliberalization”?

    The partners were untied, and now it seemed as if it was possible. Is it really not possible for them to make a goat’s face so that it doesn’t seem too small?
    So that you can knock the stupidity out of your head along with the donkey.
